UPVC Door Security

High Security Door Cylinders

Lock Bumping

Lock bumping a UPVC door lock can take around 5 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to your property.

The Facts

UAP Door Cylinders
  • A 10 year old child can open a UPVC door with a bump key
  • Bump keys can be bought by anyone from a number of websites in the UK for as little as £2
  • When lock bumping has occurred on your property there is no sign of forced entry or damage to the lock meaning insurance companies are wary in paying out
  • Our UAP cylinders will protect you 100% against lock bumping. We guarantee this for life of the lock
  • All our UAP cylinders we supply and fit come with 5 years parts & labour warranty

The Truth

The truth is that the majority of security cylinders on the market today are not Anti-Snap so thieves will not even attempt to pick or bump the lock, they will move straight onto snapping the cylinder.

Lock Snapping

Lock snapping is a problem that most security door cylinders have failed to address. The principle is easy to enough to understand & apply pressure to the lock cylinder and it will snap.

The problem this leads to is that all of the other security measures that you thought were keeping you safe; the dead-bolts, anti-lift bars etc. are all rendered useless as lock snapping focuses only on the cylinder and exploiting its inherent weaknesses.

x2 locks for £99, great price

Really impressed with the work done at my home. The locksmith did a grand job of replacing my garage lock, the locksmith arrived on time. Also carrying out a free security survey, which was fantastic as I had a faulty lock on my front door. The locksmith changed it there and then which also came with a 5 year warranty, which is very reassuring. In total I Paid £99 to get x2 locks replaced which is a fantastic price for the standard of the work carried out. Shanaya

Hi Shanaya, thank you for leaving us your review and we're pleased that you were happy with the price. Tom

Handbag snatched

I was walking along in the shopping centre when some youth snatched my handbag after I tried my best to fend him off. Sadly it hasn't turned up yet 🙁 I called your company and within half an hour they arrived at my property. They soon got me back in so I could start to cancel bank cards etc which was a relief. Charlotte

Hi Charlotte, that must have been a frightening experience, we hope your handbag is returned to you promptly.

Filing cabinet locks changed

I used your company to have my filing cabinet locks changed. The man was very attentive and knew his stuff! Many thanks Diana

Hi Diana, thanks for the review and we're glad the engineer impressed you.

I received excellent service and work from this company. I had a problem where my lock was not working properly. As you can imagine this was very distressing as I was about to leave the country for a few weeks. I contacted the Low Cost Locksmiths and they were able to come out that day and realign my lock. The engineer did a very good job and was very professional and knowledgeable in his work. Thank you

Hi thank you for your review we were glad to be of service

Highly Secure Euro Cylinder

The high security Euro Cylinder is, as you would expect, Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill and Zero Lift. However, the feature which really sets this apart is the Anti-Snap feature. The Euro Cylinder will keep you safe from all of these methods of attack and replacing your cylinder is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to purchase peace of mind.

Ordinarily, companies develop locks and cylinders that can withstand lock bumping but there are not many that have thought about or looked at lock snapping. This is because creating an Anti-Snap cylinder is not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, thieves and miscreants know this and so lock snapping is quickly becoming the number one way that they enter premises.

Recently there has been a wave of lock snapping attacks, so many so that it has caught the attention of the media. As a result of the coverage, many people are aware of this threat but are either unaware of what they can do about it, worried that the solution will cost a small fortune or are blissfully ignorant in the belief that their security lock will automatically be Anti-Snap.

Resist lock snapping and bumping

Your UPVC door is more than likely protected by nothing more than a £5 lock

As seen on BBC

The Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill, Zero Lift and Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder is specifically designed to keep you safe. The solution to the lock snapping problem seems simple but is the result of ingenious research and testing. Most lock cylinders snap in such a way that leaves the locking mechanism useless, causing the door to swing right open. An Anti-Snap cylinder is mostly snap resistant but if it were to snap at all, it would snap in a way that kept the locking mechanism, and your safety, intact.

Of course, all of the Euro Cylinders are six pin and each conform to EN1303:2005 British Standard Kitemark, easily one of the most recognised and revered safety hallmarks in the world.
